At the kidnappers' apartment, meanwhile, one of them gets off the phone with their very angry boss and shoots the one who keeps dumping phones and almost getting caught in bars. The kidnapped girl looks pretty upset at seeing this. She should probably be glad there aren't a lot of wood chippers in Manhattan.
The rest of the Alphas are all back at the office with horizontal morning sunlight streaming through the window as Bill briefs the team, but more importantly, humbly thanks them for their help. They all exchange glances at this complete reversal in Bill's character, even though it's still delivered in his standard blank-faced monotone. Gary reports that, according to a call he just picked up, Persky the bouncy FBI boss and Sarah the sucky bodyguard are going to make the drop. What could go wrong? Later, Gary has tapped into the FBI's GPS system and traced the drop to the Bronx Zoo, which, as Bill and Cameron point out, is a shitty place for kidnappers to set up a drop what with all the people around. At eight in the morning?
The surviving kidnapper and his victim are in a new apartment, and he's getting kind of chatty while he spreads plastic on the floor and explains that he can't let her go. He promises to make it painless for her, as long as she agrees to send him a message from the other side. You know, after she's dead. She sobs through her gag, but nods. Shouldn't an evil Alpha be showing up some time soon?
Bill and Cameron and Gary are still nowhere with the drop map, until Gary says something that reminds them that the route will take them past the bar where they picked up the phone and almost the kidnapper -- Fourth and Broadway. Bill gets on the phone to get lease agreements for a ten-block radius from there. Should be plenty of time to check them all!
Bill and Rachel are searching places, and fortunately they're only on the fourth one when Rachel smells decay and explosive thermite coming through the door. Fortunately Cameron's in the alley and able to parkour up to the fire escape so he can enter through the window. He does lose his footing for a second, but next thing we know he lets them in, the (presumably) disarmed bomb in his hand. Once inside, they find the dead kidnapper on the floor, but no live kidnapper or live girl. Bill figures that the bad guy must have known they were coming. He checks in with Gary, who reports that Sarah the bodyguard and Persky are on their way to the drop with the cash. However, Gary probably can't overhear their conversation, in which Sarah's asking Persky about the temptation involved with all that money. He answers blandly, but then he gets a text from Bill warning that the kidnappers have someone on the inside. Apparently Persky suddenly trusts Bill, because he pretends the text was from his wife, but Sarah -- who it turns out was the inside man all along -- is onto him and tases him. Lucky for her, he let her drive. Next she tases the GPS unit Gary was using to track them from the moving Alpha minivan, so Gary's effectively gone blind. Also, Sarah just ditched the FBI follow cars and their helicopter, which tells me the FBI can't really afford to be firing any remotely competent people at all. She texts the remaining kidnapper a very short message: "#." "Good news, it's almost over," he tells his victim. Just one good pounding away.
